I sadly have just learned how awesome anime is in my 25th year of life. I've only watched a few popular anime's but I am hooked, I've bought a couple manga's as well.
So I am open to any suggestions really, I like crazy, action packed, deep, and dark stuff. I've watched Attack on titan, Naruto "I'm on shippuden now", sword art online, and recently finished up durarara to date.
The manga's that I have are summer wars 1 and 2, and assassination classroom.
Any suggestions will be appreciated, help me to find the really good hidden gems, I'll check most anything out for a few episodes in the least.



Oh yeah, I WATCHED GOD EATER AND IT WAS AWESOME!

Hmm. I'm no expert by any means but you might like Akame Ga Kill. It's here on Crunchyroll and is pretty good. Everyone who has read the Manga seemed really mad but that's nothing new. I don't read Manga so I enjoyed it.

Another one would be for sure Parasyte: The Maxim. Really good one that I can't find much beef with. Good art, story, and the ending doesn't leave you feeling unfinished.

Last one I will recommend is Blast of Tempest. Another good one that I really liked for the anticipation and story.

These aren't really hidden gems but good regardless. Worth at least checking out.

I concur with FMA; Brotherhood, which has been mentioned a couple times.

Trigun is a great older series with a lot of solid action.

For anyone who likes SAO, I tend to recommend A Certain Magical Index, Is It Wrong To Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? or High School DxD (the last one only if you don't mind excessive fan service).

If you want to try something a little slower paced, but still dark and thoughtful and with a bit of action, try Bakemonogatari (psychological romance with some horror elements), Steins; Gate (a great time-travel sci-fi story), or Angel Beats (adds some drama and feels to a war in the after life)

And if you want to try something that's just completely different:
Toradora (romantic comedy)
Usagi Drop (feel good, family-oriented slice of life)
The Devil is a Part-Timer (comedy)

>Generic list of good anime

Can't go wrong with a few Makoto Shinkai movies.

Like Kotonoha no Niwa.

Or Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo.
